Dear Parents, Guardians and Friends,
I am writing to ask you to join me in donating to the Takoma Thrives fundraising appeal. Takoma Thrives is our annual major fundraising event by the PTA for TPMS. Takoma Thrives is our slogan for the appeal and our goals for our school.
Through Takoma Thrives we are:
- giving Three Hours for Takoma as volunteers
- Honoring our staff
- Reaching new heights
- Investing in our community
- being a Voice for our children
- making sure Every parent counts
- and showing our School spirit.
Our contributions will help reach the goal of $5,500. Last year Takoma Thrives raised $4,836 from the community. Those contributions helped support the Sixth Grade Picnic, the Eighth Grade Graduation gifts, Mini-Grants to the GSA, Real Food for Kids Culinary Program, the Takoma Park Early Career Program and the Star Student Awards to name a few and staff appreciation events such as Magical Mondays. The funds will also help sponsor the upcoming Community Event on May 10th.
Please join me in making Takoma Thrive. You can make a donation by mail or following the links below via Paypal, Venmo or with your credit card.

Takoma Park Middle School Food Pantry
Dear TPMS Families,
The Difference Makers Takoma Park Middle School Food Pantry is now working with the Takoma Park Middle School PTA, Takoma Park Elementary School PTA and Piney Branch Elementary School PTA as one site in collaboration for monetary donations for local families in need and to find information about how to receive food assistance during the coronavirus school shut down.
As a safety precaution and until we get past this current health crisis, we will no longer be accepting food donations but will start giving Giant gift card donations this Sunday and continue on a weekly basis. We will gratefully receive monetary donations through https://tpespta.net/
donate-now/ or you can purchase Giant Gift cards online and email them to email@example.com. Families will then be able to more safely shop for themselves. We recently distributed cards to over 250 families!
If you are a family in need of assistance with food, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are in a position to donate, please do so generously as we work to keep our community safe and keep food in the homes of our families in need.
Thank you so much for supporting this important community initiative.
Wendy Kent, Pantry Coordinator & Manager Bryan Goehring, TPMS Difference Makers Gretchen Weigel Doughty, Takoma Park Middle School PTA President Meghan Holland McDonald, Takoma Park Elementary School PTA President
Sarah Goupell, Piney Branch Elementary School PTA President
